Genuine antique

1760

Description:

Fine c.18th vue Optic of the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. Construction of the tower occurred in three stages over 199 years with construction beginning on 9 August 1173.

Vue Optic: During the c.18th “vues d’optique” became extremely popular in England and Europe. They capitalised on a market eager for the latest novelty. They were specifically designed to create the illusion of perspective when viewed with a zograscope or perspective glass. These viewing devices used a series of reflecting mirrors to enhance the illusion of depth in the print, creating a veritable “view” for the onlooker.
